Fair point but the amount of manual labor required just to be able to
use the tool each time sort of defeats the purpose. Once someone
manages 10 blogs or more, having to change perms on these folders
each time is counter-productive.
Just playing devil's advocate as one of the guys who produced one of
those shell scripts that take care of all the upgrading.
